The Broncos are without Champ Bailey for tonight’s game against the Chargers.

Bailey, the veteran cornerback who was listed as questionable with a foot injury, is inactive tonight. It will be the 11th game Bailey has missed this season.

Chargers receiver Eddie Royal, who was listed as questionable with a toe injury, is active. Royal leads the team with seven touchdown catches this season, so having him available is a big plus for San Diego.

In addition to Bailey, the Broncos’ inactives are WR Wes Welker, QB Zac Dysert, RB CJ Anderson, OL JD Walton, OL Chris Kuper and DL Derek Wolfe.

The Chargers’ inactives are CB Johnny Patrick, SS Brandon Taylor, OT Kenny Wiggins, WR Lavelle Hawkins, G Steve Schilling, NT Kwame Geathers and QB Brad Sorensen.
